Barracuda Green features Seagate Tech for 4K Sector Hard Drives
Seagate today announced the availability of the Barracuda Green hard drive, the industry’s highest performance eco-friendly 3.5-inch desktop drive for low-power personal computers, multi-drive home networking systems and external PC storage.
The Barracuda Green hard drive, formerly Barracuda LP, combines the industry’s highest spin speed (5900 RPM) with Seagate’s SmartAlign technology to deliver best-in-class performance. SmartAlign technology enables all the benefits of the new 4K sector standard while simplifying drive installation by eliminating the need for utilities often required to ensure optimum drive performance. The cool-running, lower-power Barracuda Green hard drive delivers whisper-quiet acoustics and helps reduce system costs associated with the fans and power supply devices often required for power-hungry systems.
Barracuda Green hard drives also support Seagate Think Green programs for a greener more sustainable world:
- 70 percent or more of the materials used to build the drive can be recycled.
- All Barracuda Green drives use low halogen components to reduce the negative environmental impacts related to these substances.
- Barracuda Green is designed and built to the highest environmental standards.
The Barracuda Green hard drive is offered in capacities of 2TB, 1.5TB and 1TB is now shipping.
